Some parts are simply beautiful, like the large lounge and owner's bedroom. Other parts suffer from a certain coldness, like the dining room.


Two Tender Garages

The lower deck includes two garages for the tenders with an access towards the bathing platform in the stern, four guest staterooms (aft), the engine room (to the center) and crew quarters (forward). The first deck accommodates the large lounge (aft), a section containing staircases, lifts, galley (to the center), the dining room and three other guest staterooms (forward).


Dedicated Owners Deck

The second deck is completely dedicated for use by the owner with a lounge (aft), the "staircases and lifts" area (to the center), a guest stateroom to starboard, the owner's dressing room to port, and the owner's panoramic suite (forward). The third deck accommodates a panoramic lounge (aft), the "staircases and lifts" area (to the center), the captain's stateroom and the pilothouse (forward). The sundeck accommodates a splendid Jacuzzi surrounded by a circular solarium protected by a roof. (source: www.yachtspotter.com).
